Greatest Cruise Ships

No ocean liners (Titanic, Queen Mary, United States, etc. )! Hybrid ocean liners/cruise ships like QE2 and Rotterdam may be included. Try to focus on accomplishments, historical significance, and ship design and not the activities on board. Personal examples of good looking ships, QM2, QE2, all Royal Caribbean except oasis class.

The Top Ten

1 Disney Fantasy

So glad it's now #1. I put this thing on here, anyways, - brendandog2003

They should play Look What You Made Me Do on the top deck parties.

Best Disney cruise ship, should be up there with the magic.

I've been on the Disney Dream, the Fantasy's sister ship!

2 Disney Dream

My life has been altered for the better thanks to the people on this ship. - railfan99

3 Queen Elizabeth 2

The trendsetter of modern cruise ships, it's ironic this ship was built as an ocean liner. The QE2 sailed from 1969-2008, served as a troopship in war, before sailing off to an uncertain future in Dubai.

4 Pacific Princess
5 Disney Magic

When you wish upon a star, Disney enters the cruise marker.

6 Disney Wonder
7 Mardi Gras

The Empress of Canada was bought by the newly formed Carnival Cruise lines and became the Mardi Gras. This former liner catapulted Carnival to number one status! The ship was sadly scrapped at Alang, India in 2003-2004 as the Apollo.

8 Queen Mary 2

The QE2 was believed to be the last liner/cruise ship ever built, until QM2 came along. The largest, most expensive ocean liner ever, she, like the QE2 makes this list because she cruises for half the year as well. With the QE2 gone, she is the last ocean liner making regular crossings.

9 Rotterdam

The quintessential cruise ship! SS Rotterdam was built in 1959 as an ocean liner for Holland America Line. She sailed as a cruise ship after 1971, and sailed on until 2000. She is a Dutch masterpiece and is preserved as a hotel/museum in Rotterdam, Netherlands

10 Titanic

My heart won't go on if I don't see it in real life and I am a titanic expert but I wonder how long did it take to build

The titanic rocks but I hate it because I wasn't born to be able to go on it.

I love you titanic* imitates the horn!

Was very fancy

The Contenders

11 Sovereign of the Seas

This ship, alongside Norway, set off the boom in large passenger ship construction as the 20th century drew to a close. This was Royal Caribbean's first mega ship.

12 Oasis of the Seas

The first passenger ship to surpass 200,000 tons. Like Destiny, her profile isn't exactly pleasing to the eye.

13 MS Nieuw Amsterdam

Absolutely gorgeous ship inside and out. - railfan99

14 Norway

Bought by NCL, France, alongside Cunard's QE2, proved large passenger ships could still be profitable. France was rebuilt as Norway, until a deadly boiler explosion humiliated NCL and exposed machinery that hasn't been taken care of in years. She was quietly withdrawn, and sold to the scrappers at Alang India. She was finished off by 2009.

15 Carnival Destiny

The first passenger ship to surpass 100,000 gross register tons. She was renamed Carnival Sunshine in 2013. Her profile is less than pleasing, however.

16 Allure of the Seas

Biggest cruise ship ever. FIFTY MILLIMETERS LONGER then the Oasis of the Seas - N64Dude

17 Norwegian Breakaway

I went on a cruise on this ship once-great service, entertainment, dining, activities, itineraries-you name it!

18 MSC Preziosa
19 Costa Fascinosa
20 Britannic
